    I have searced apple.com and found their solutions. However I don't know how to archive and Install (the only option that works for me). Do I have to have a second mac?

    When I turn on my laptop it goes straight to the blue screen, so I don't know where I have the option to archive and install. Could someone tell me if I have to boot into a certain mode, or if I have to have two macs. Thanks in advance!

    You don't need a second computer. All you need to do is put in your Mac OS install disks and restart holding down the "c" key.
